This version of Facebook uses less data and works in all network conditions. Facebook Lite is an official app from Facebook that’s used by the users that have limited access of internet and have lower backup devices. This app uses low space on the device memory. It just takes less than 2MB of Space. It means that this app is hundred times lighter than the original Facebook. Following are some features of this app:
- Fast to install – the app is less than 2 MB.
- Quick to load.
- Efficient with data.
- Designed for 2G networks and areas with limited network connectivity.
The interesting fact about this app is that it allows the user to become more socialize while having slower internet as it works same on 2G or 3G internet Connection. Keeping up with friends is faster than ever. Facebook lite is free and always will be.
Facebook Lite for Android turns up being a familiar and intuitive because it is a redesigned app. The features that come with it are not far more different from the conventional app. Instead of having a floating button on the right bottom side, this app has had the status posting bar moved to the top side of the app. The layout shows a different design, yet the order of the basic tabs to tap are still the same; News Feed, Friends Requests, Messages, Notifications, Search, and Options.
The text and buttons are generally bigger on this app. This is intended to give the same advanced experience on the phones with low resolution screens. On the notifications panel, profile photos are not shown on FB Lite. Instead, it goes for small and low resolution image to inform the users if their postings are commented, liked, or reacted by friends. The designed look is really semi-modern shown by the grey background, combined with blue and white dominating the interface. The absence of the border lying between a notification bar and the sides of the screen is what makes this app a little squished in the eyes.
FB Lite has the built-in messaging feature. There is no force to download the separate app to continue using the messaging feature on it. To be fair, Lite messaging feature is not as interesting as Messenger since it does not include message bubbles, timestamps and read receipts.
- It is fast to install.
- It is the space-saving app.
- This app is efficient with data.
- It offers better connectivity with poor networks.
- The interface design needs extra improvement.
